We are joined on this episode of the podcast by our buddy, the gnarly Slater Thompson. If you missed Slater introducing himself on episode 45, you can check it out here
In this episode Slater takes through his favorite spots to ride, eat and chill in Surf City USA.
We are joined this episode of the podcast by S&C coach Rick Meldrum, who cut his teeth as a Crossfit coach before becoming an accredited subject matter expert. Rick talks about his experience working at West Point, UMASS Lowell, Hawaii and with private clients.
Rick was one of Schep’s first coaches, so its really cool getting an insight into what makes them both tick.
The guys talk about what Will’s experience in the program was like, how his life has changed since he became a D-1 college football player and where he plans to use his abilities in the real world.
Below is an excerpt from the show. The full transcript of the podcast is available upon request.
“Welcome back to the Coastal Athlete Program. I’m your host Schep. We’re going to be sitting down with Josh Peterson of This Ocean Life.TV to talk about his podcast and what got him started in collecting the oral history of the people who not only find their recreation but sometimes their career, their lifestyle, their religion in and around the water.
Now, you guys may remember Josh. I’ve already appeared on his show, and we’ll talk about that a little bit during our episode. But for now, we’re going to go ahead kick it over to the credits. And then we’ll see you after that.
Welcome to The Coastal Athlete Program, presented by Apex Predator Athletics ‘Train Today, Survive Tomorrow.’ Now from shores of Monterey Bay, here’s your host Schep.
Welcome back to the Coastal Athlete Program. Once again, I am your host Schep and I am joined in the studio today by my gorgeous, co-host Posey Blue Scheppler, who is currently asleep on my foot. You may hear her snoring as we get going.
Monterey Bay needs aid!
There are currently 12 more scheduled cruise ships in Monterey Bay this year alone… Don’t change your profile picture, get off the sidelines and get in the game. The ocean needs you.
Schep and Brent Allen sat down to discuss the state of cruise ships in Monterey Bay and the risks posed by their continued encroachment on the preserve. The interview was originally recorded back in December, but the issue rages on here along the Central Coast.
We, the people, have been sold out by a small group of elected officials who have made a unilateral decision that puts the largest underwater preserve in the United States at risk. Cruise ships in Monterey Bay is a national issue, not something that a local city council should be allowed to sidestep in the name of short term profits.
If/when there is an incident involving a cruise ship, the impact will be felt along the entire Pacific seaboard.
DONT PUT YOU HEAD IN THE SAND! EDUCATE YOURSELF AND DEMAND ACTION FROM YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS.
The death and life of Monterey Bay
